Handmade Crafts UK

My name is Ana and I am the owner of Handmade Crafts UK. I am originally from Portugal but have been living in the UK for the past 25 years.
I have two children aged 10 and 12 and a young man aged 20 with special needs. I also work full time for another company I own in the translations area.
Handmade Crafts UK started from my passion for all handmade products using mainly natural and organic materials. I love the time I spend making my crafts and consider it my own space where my imagination is let free to create products with love and attention. 
I love variety and do my crafts accordingly to my state of being: some days I feel more energetic and immerse myself in making organic soaps and bath bombs; some other days I am more tuned in to my stillness and decide to crochet or decorate frames.
My day cannot end without having made at least something creative, so I always try to organise the time during my day so that crafts are part of it.
Hope you like my products as much as I love making them. Thank you for reading and look forward to your purchases.

Hi, I’m Helen. 58 year old grandmother and self employed steam ironing business owner and keeper of rescued chickens but I like to make and sell jewellery for charity. I started making jewellery back in 2008 after I worked in a semi precious gemstone jewellery shop (a dream job!) where she made her own items and took commissions. I quickly realised that I was capable of that and took a few jewellery making classes. Straight after, I started making jewellery and selling a few bits. I then proceeded onto giving jewellery making classes for children, but had to stop after the insurance costs escalated. I now make all sorts of jewellery and key rings (but not ear rings due to insurance costs) and I sell online for various charities. I am more than happy to take commissions. I give quotations up front. I only work with semi precious gemstones and plated silver. My favourite has always been Fresh Water Pearls, so you will see them feature quite a lot in my work. All proceeds always go to charity: (Various) Rescue Remedies Dog Rescue (£2,700 raised) RSPCA, CIWF, Esther The Wonder Pig, Mrs JG and Ms LB rescue for dogs and cats (£634.00 so far and ongoing online).

Art by Estelle

I’m Estelle, a 30 year old coach and Front of House Manager, working in the fitness industry. During lockdown I found myself increasingly stressed and in need of a new hobby, or outlet for that stress, so I took up drawing! I always had an arty side at school, studying photography, textiles and art, but until recently have not pursued any of these hobbies.
 
My drawings are inspired by art that I like and I would want to have in my own house. I am inspired by traditional tattoos, my favourite artists or inspiring people and I am working on trying to piece together all of my individual drawings into a more well-rounded framed piece. 
 
Photographs of my work show some completed pieces and others in the early stages of pencil work, before adding detail and fine lines.
 
I am open to taking commissions or selling copies of my work.
 
My preferred method for contact is my email address estelle.p.parker@hotmail.co.uk

Albert & Bear Candle Co

Albert & Bear Candle Co. Specialise in luxury handmade candles, wax melts and reed diffusers all of which are hand poured in Surrey.

They are made from 100% natural soy wax and vegan friendly fragrance oils only. They contain no additives, no artificial dyes and are non toxic making them safe to use around pregnant women, children and pets.

The company was created whilst the owner Holly was on maternity leave with her son Albert (and dog Bear) and after a quick Google search learnt that standard paraffin wax was highly toxic and could be linked to asthma and worse illnesses. Holly then came across natural soy wax candles, however they were all too expensive for her liking, so she decided to make her own affordable but high quality soy wax candles and so Albert & Bear Candle Co. was created.
